If you have been a victim of a robbery at home or away from home, you are no doubt distressed and angry about your property loss, whether it was jewelry, a car or valuable computer equipment that was taken. You want restitution, as well as criminal justice consequences for the robber. If you were injured or your family member was killed during the robbery, your needs for recovery are much greater. Your losses may include medical expenses, lost wages, physical rehabilitation, mental health therapy, and perhaps funeral and burial expenses.
The psychological trauma that a robbery victim suffers may be the greatest challenge for surviving victims. The feeling of helplessness that the victim suffered may never go away. For this reason, at Frank, Juengel & Radefeld, Attorneys at Law, in St. Louis, we pay close attention to the long-term recovery needs of robbery victims.
You may require years of counseling and therapy to recover a normal sense of well-being. You may find it difficult or impossible to continue working like you could before due to psychological trauma, as well as because of physical injuries from the robbery.
